Big ole bully smile | Sweet Face | Laying Down
Boomer is fostered in a home with children, two other dogs, cats and even some Bearded Dragons. He is getting a lot of socialization. Here's a note from his foster mom:
This boy is just too sweet for words. I don't think I could have asked for a better foster. He is the best pup. He has his whining moments but he is learning super fast & scared of a water bottle. Heck you make a hand shape like a water bottle & he responds to it. .
Boomer must have been in a home before. He is housebroke, knows sit, & takes to a bed like a champ. He doesn't mind his crate at all either.
He does well in the yard and ignores the dog next door. The few times she got close to the fence & tried to fence fight he just trotted off someplace else in the yard.
Boomie just wants to follow you around all the time & lay down & hang out with you. He won't leave the porch or go in the yard unless you go with him. He loves to bask in the sun. I try to get him into shady spots but he won't have it. I think he came in badly sunburned so I tried to avoid too much sun for him.
He is spoiled already. He has had free roam of my bedroom & the kids room & hallway. He is not a chewer & just loves to stay by the gate in the hallway so he can see all of us mingle in the living room. He hasn't had much more than a few minutes in the living room though. I am trying to make sure we keep up the normal house routine like we don't have a foster dog so my own dogs don't get too upset.
Now the cats....sigh. This is where I am not sure. When I picked him up from SNKC he didn't mind the cat at all. I took him to the barkery & he didn't mind their cat either. The first night at home the cats sniffed him out & no worries. He is now barking at the cats & very much on alert. He does this outside & chases them. I didn't do any cat intros over the weekend due to all the fireworks. My cats were pretty much hidden. Although I know Boomer did see the one cat on the cat tree & got a bit jealous but stayed behind the baby gate & calmed down on his own. That is a good sign. But I will not announce that it is a true fact yet.

This boy is really a low key good dude. He really is. He is not mouthy or a jumper. In fact my 3 year old niece waked him around our backyard while other kids were shooting off fireworks. She is really attached to him. "Boomer? Where is Boomer? I need to take care of him." I should have video taped it. I think it really shows his personality right there.
Anyway I could go on & on about this boy. I need to get a bio together tonight & give him a bath again. Wish us luck as this is day #1 & will be our routine day! The point is Boomie is awesome :-) "
